Did You Know This About Our Presidents? We Didn’t Think So
Monday, February 15th is President's Day, or as some of us call it the "National Check the Mailbox and Go to the Bank for No Reason Day." With some much fake news around us, it's hard to know what we should or shouldn't believe when it comes to our presidents.
There is so much divisiveness out there and nobody knows what or who to really believe, so let's take one day (or the weekend) to enjoy 5 fun (I hope) facts about some of our Presidents.
John Quincy Adams liked to swim nude in the Potomac River. I classify that fact as creepy more than fun.
Franklin D. Roosevelt said during his 1st Inaugural Address that "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." What most people don't know is that the original draft said "The only thing we have to fear is phobias." Okay, that is Fake News!
Calvin Coolidge liked having his head rubbed while he ate breakfast in bed. Traci asked me if that was true or fake news. I replied that I didn't really know because I wasn't the one rubbing his head.
Richard Nixon said, "A man is not finished when he is defeated." Patrick Mahomes hopes that this is true after his pitiful performance last Sunday against Tampa Bay.
The Bushes are related to Marily Monroe, Benedict Arnold, and Winston Churchill. Even if this is fake news, it is a fun fact.
If you have Monday off, then enjoy your three day weekend. Also, be kind to those around you, you don't know what kind of day they might be having.
